Cecil Rhodes. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

Cecil Rhodes. It seems as if the dream of Mr. Rhodes's is coming very near to realisation, for the railway from the Cape to Cairo is now quite within the range of prob- ability. The latest news shows that the gold-mining companies in Rhod- esia will assist in building the line as far as Gwelo, a town situated north-east of Buluwayo, the present railway terminus. The German Kaiser, too, as a result of Mr. Rhodes' recent interview, is asking his Reich- stag (as the German Parliament is called) to guarantee the cost of con- structing the railway line through German East Africa along the east coast of Lake Tanganyika.

Plague in China. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

Plague in Cliiiia. During the middle ages terrible plagues often spread through out England and Western Europe, decimating their peoples. You have read, in Brooks's Standard History, of the Black Death which in the days of Edward III. carried off half the population of England, and liad such an important effect upon the position of the working classes, and of the Great Plague of the times of Charles II. In modern times improved methods of ventila- tion and drainage, and the increased care for public health in European countries, have lessened the risk of such terrible scourges. But we still hear of them occasionally in Eastern countries. Such a plague is now raging in Southern China, and in Hongkong [."> deaths in one day were reported last week.

Muscat, the largest town in Arabia and the capital of Oman, is in the far S.E. of the Peninsula. Tt is governed by native rulers and is a very prosperous trading city, ex- porting pearls, fish, dates, dyes, drugs, salt, etc. In February the Sultan had arranged to cede to France a small port, Bunder Jissah, 6 miles south of Muscat. When the British Admiral heard of tl)is arrangement (for Britain keeps seme warships in the Gulf of Oman, to protect her trading vessels there) he appeared before Muscat with 3 warships, the " Eclipse," the "Red- breast," and the "Jask ' and in- formed the Sultan that if he did not appear on the " Eclipse " before 2 p.m. that day to explain his action the town would be bombarded. This frightened the Sultan, and at 1-30 p.m. he cancelled the cession of Bunder Jissah, and obeyed the order of Admiral Douglas by appearing on the British warship. After a consultation of three hours he returned to shore.

End of the Spanish-American War. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

End of the Spanish American War. The Philippines have been the scene of war for a long time. First the Americans were fighting the Spaniards there, but now peace has been made between those two countries, the United States Government having paid to Spain about four millions of pounds for the cession of the islands. Then the Filipinos became insurgent, and, wishing to form a republic of their own, fought the Americans. All the Filipinos are not rebelling, but there are numerous small tribes on the islands, and more than thirty languages are spoken. The princi- pal tribes are fighters, and the other tribes are afraid of them. Many who want peace, and are willing to work, have been forced to join the army. Though peace with Spain is settled, all the Spanish officers and soldiers have not yet returned to Spain. Those left in Manila are orderly and well-behaved. They seem to be light-hearted, and re- lieved of a great responsibility.

A Dangerous Spot. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

A Dangerous Spot. On the north side of Port Hunter, the har- bour of Newcastle, there is a dangerous patch known as the Oyster-bank. .Many a fine ship has struck upon it and been lost ; amongst others, the Cawarra, the Colonist, and the Wen- douree. On Tuesday, 4th April, another wreck was added to the list. The iron barque Regent Murray, 849 tons, whilst being towed into the harbour by the tug, Newburgh, was driven by the storm on to the fatal spot and lost. Fortunately all hands were saved, The barque had just come from Mauritius to load coal for Chili. Lord and Lady Hampden and their daughters arrived in England on 10th April.

The Prospect of Peace in the Philippines. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

The Prospect of Pence in the Philippines. On behalf of the United States, pro- mises have been made to the Fili- pinos that every measure of self-government will be granted, compatible with the supre- macy of America ; also that they shall have full civil rights and reli- gious freedom. A good effect has thus been produced, and man)- of tlie Filipinos who have been under arms are returning to their homes, and seeking the protection of the United States. We may then expect to find a new market for many of our products : for we are only 18 days' sail from the free port of Manila, the capital, whilst it takes 26 days to reach there from San Francisco, the nearest American port. The Philippines have a popu- lation of 8,000,000 ; j.e., more than twice as many as the whole of Australia, and soon there should be a large demand for our frozen and tinned meats, live stock, cheese, etc. ; also for our horses, as the horses bred there are small and inefficient.

Wireless Telegraphy. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

Wireless Telegraphy. The wonderful deve- lopments of electricity have entirely changed business methods, and men have almost ceased to marvel as each new development comes forward. The latest invention in this domain is Signor Marconi's system of wireless telegraphy. In the London Tunes the other day was printed the first message trans- mitted by the Signor's new method from Boulogne to Dover, a distance of 32 miles across the Strait of Dover. Successful experiments have also been made between Bath and Salisbury, a distance of 34 miles. The new invention has already been the means of saving one ship, for by its aid a lightship on Goodwin Sands was able to inform the coastguards on the main- land that a ship was in danger.

SPIDER WEB AND STEEL THREAD. --It is not generally known that, size by size, a thread of spider silk is said to be decidedly tougher than a bar of steel. An ordinary thread will bear the weight of three grains This is just about 50 per cent, stronger than a steel thread of the same thickness. Prince Roland Buonaparte has caused it to be announced that, on his death, Tasman's original map of Australia (now in the Prince's posses- sion) will be presented to Australia. " Grandma is eighty years old to- day, Ethel ; so when you say your prayers to-night, you must pray that she may be allowed to grow very, very old ! " " But she's very, very old already, ma ! Hadn't I better pray that she may be made young again ? " " My father is so tall he can look over a six-foot fence !" "So can mine-when he has his hat on ! ! "

The Peace Conference. [Newspaper Article] — The Children's Newspaper — 28 April 1899

The Peace Conference. Next month the Powers of Europe are to send representatives to a conference to discuss the means of obtaining interna- tional peace. It is the intention of the Czar to make arbitration the chief question, and in this he will have the energetic support of Great Britain, which Power will be repre- sented by Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British Ambassador at Wash- ington, and Sir Henry Howard, British Minister at the Hague. The Czar has sent messages of thanks to those Powers who are in sympathy with his proposals to hold a conference. No message was sent to the Berlin Embassy, which seems to indicate Germany does not sympathise with the conference.
